It’s a stovetop version of Naan, this is something I always make whenever I invite my friends for lunch or dinner. It’s not only easy to make and but also a good surprise for them.
I also have this often at our office cafeteria. They serve it with mint chutney and lentil curry or grilled Chicken, which is also a good combination.
You can also grill the bread or make it in oven, but I prefer stovetop because naan comes out very soft/fluffy and also save your time specially when you have guests at home.
